The Alan Parsons Project

Eye In The Sky (Numbered 180g 45RPM Vinyl 2LP)

Grammy Award winner for Best Immersive Audio Album at the 2019 Grammy Awards!

The opening track to the Alan Parsons Project’s Eye in the Sky remains the most recognised instrumental in sports—fanfare inseparably tied with introducing NBA legend Michael Jordan and his six-time world-champion Chicago Bulls mates before games, and still used by many teams as an energy-raising prelude.

Indeed, the subdued grandiosity, cosmic bluster, and lights-out wonder of “Sirius” sets the table for the band’s smash 1982 album, whose hallmark smoothness, lushness, and balance extend to the music’s exquisite song writing, dreamy emotions, and underlying orchestral scope.

Credit for the record’s craft, cohesiveness, and accessibility also falls to Alan Parsons and creative partner Eric Woolfson’s knack for recruiting session pros that translate their visions with unquestioned feeling—particularly, vocalists who include former Zombie leader Colin Blunstone and soul singer Lenny Zakatek.

Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity’s RTI pressed 180g 45RPM 2LP version of Eye in the Sky features succulent warmth, magnificent balance, low-end heft, and see-through transparency that take you into the studio with Parsons at Abbey Road Studios.

Each note seems perfectly placed, every sequence painstakingly considered.

Boasting front-to- back depth, concert-hall-level separation, realistic presence, and bang-on accuracy.

This release will test the capabilities of the world’s finest stereo systems.

There’s more information, more texture, more nuance— more of everything to be experienced. British progressive rock would never again sound so sophisticated, suave, or steady.
